"i came for the fried oreos"

On Sunday, our town held Mayfair Festival. It was for four days and broken down into separate days for different music genres. They had a day for country, jazz, Celtic, classic rock, etc. We chose to go on Sunday for classic rock and jazz and we had such a blast. I went with two of my co-workers (Margaret and Cinthia) and Sean. Margaret came with her family and they did not last very long because her mom and aunt wanted to go to the casino badly. Sean hung around for a couple of hours before he headed home because we were getting a quote to put in a vinyl fence. We have a chain fence now but Sean wants to be all fancy. $6,000 fancy! We'll continue to shop around for quotes because all I can think is about the vacations we can take with that money.

Anyway, sorry about getting off topic. I tend to do that a lot.

A few things to note:

- I had my first taste of fried Oreos! So good. I was hoping to also try fried Twinkies but no luck there. Maybe the next fair.
- I know all the songs. All the old people songs to be exact, according to Cinthia. I'm cool and I know it.
- All purchases were made with tickets. For example, my Shrimp Jambalaya was 20 tickets which equaled $10.00. I thought it was kinda fun to pay with tickets vs. money.
- It is the best when you make friends with a person who you have so much in common with. The conversation flows and it's just plain nice.
- I'm really loving living in PA. It is the strangest thing but I might like it more than Albany, NY! Not more than the city, obviously, but more than Albany, NY!

Here are pictures taken at the festival.

Shrimp Jambalaya.
I pretty much poured Sriracha Hot Sauce all over the dish. Yum!

Beautiful photographs. I am SO happy you've found some cool people to be friends with in PA. I knew it'd all come together eventually for you with the big move there. The festival sounded like a lot of fun. I would've known all the old rock songs too. My favorite geners have always been classic rock, pop, and rap... I'm a weirdo... anywayyyy yes, definite find another quote for a fence 6000 seems a bit overpriced.

Looks and sounds like a blast! That jambalaya looks SO good. And I understand your frustration about the fence cost. As I'm still learning, owning a home is expensive! (I still love it, though.) LOL.

Fried oreos = the best. It's pretty much a given that you eat all the crap you can at fairs. ;)

They will fry anything and most of the time it's pretty darn good. This makes me long for the fair!! I'll be going in two weeks.

I'm happy that you're liking PA now and that you still have time to hang with family and friends.
